For most of Arizona, it will take about two and a half hours from the beginning of the solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21 to the end. In the Williams-Grand Canyon area, the eclipse will begin at 9:13 a.m. Arizona is not in what is known as the "path of totality," meaning the sun will only appear partially obstructed.
